What is Freckles?

Freckles are a small patch of light brown colour on the skin, which can become more visible through exposure to the sun. It commonly appears early in childhood and may disappear with age. Freckles are cause by the increased in local melanin production after sunlight exposure. It is also associated to traits such as fair skin and red hair. Since ultraviolet (UV) radiation is the major factor that causes freckles, therefore sunscreens are important as the first-line of protection against freckles.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Skincare Recommendations:

  1. Facial cream containing ascorbic acid (vitamin C) can help to lighten freckles.
  2. Research shows that niacinamide (vitamin B3) can help improve wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
  3. Avoid direct sun exposure and apply sunscreen daily.
  4. Apply cream containing hydroquinone and kojic acid as they are shown to be effective hypopigmentation agent.
